Honda Accord Safety Ratings
There’s no doubt that those Wellington, Greenacres, and Palm Beach roads are filled with surprises. And to combat them all, you need a sedan packed with plenty of protection. Something just like the 2018 Honda Accord.
From smart safety features to structure and handling enhancers, the 2019 Accord has a little bit of everything. The Braman Honda Palm Beach team has written this review just to tell you all about it.
Honda Accord: Structural Safety
Structure is the basis of any car’s safety array. Without a rigid and reinforced body to absorb collision forces, it’s awfully hard to fully protect passengers.
That’s why the 2018 Honda Accord comes built with Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™). ACE™ bodies are fortified by front and rear crumple zones, which can both redistribute collision forces away from the cabin, as well as absorb those they can’t.
When you combine ACE™ with SmartVent® advanced airbags, the cabin of the Accord offers ample base protection for all passengers.
Basic Safety Features
Building upon that ACE™ body, you’ll find a few different basic safety technologies to improve handling and maneuverability.
First, you’ll have Vehicle Stability Assist™ with traction control. Essentially, these features reduce wheelspin and adequately disperse power to your tires for optimum traction.
You can combine these features with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, to give youself just as much stopping power as grip.
Lastly, you’ll have a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines to make use of. This ought to make pulling in and out of tight parking spots a cinch.
Accord: Smart Safety Features
One of the biggest benefits of choosing this new Honda Accord is that the Honda Sensing® suite of safety features now comes standard in it.
The goal of Honda Sensing® is to prevent accidents from ever occurring. It uses sensors and small cameras to predict when they may be imminent. It can then either send you alerts or act autonomously to prevent these accidents.
Some of the best features of Honda Sensing® include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
- Traffic Sign Recognition System
If these features aren’t enough, you can also add in the available Blind Spot Information System with the Rear Cross Traffic Monitor. This should help to mitigate those unpleasant surprises out on the road, making it far easier to change lanes.
